His drug use on during the 66 tour has been generally documented, and admitted by Dylan , as I allude to above . It is generally thought he cleaned up, after his "motorcycle accident" in mid 66 . I don't think he was even smoking (note: voice on "Nashville Skyline").
But with the 74 tour, and all the temptations of the road ...I have heard it was the coke common in the era . He cleaned up again for his Jesus period, then somewhere in thee the early 80's you start to hear all sorts of rumors . Your incident confirms this . In the 90's I know he starts to have booze problem rumors .
One problem with Dylan, is that it is sometimes hard to tell if his erratic behavior is substance induced, or just his usual weird self !
I have lost a couple of friends to the drug or, it's lifestyle , one to hepatitis , one to an OD .
Your story is sad, but not unexpected of him .

I think it's amazing that Ron Halford of Judas Priest was going out and putting on kick ass live performances during the early half of the '80s while he was snorting coke and guzzling Jack Daniels between songs.
